New Year, New Outlook

Last year I jumped at the chance to write down my goals and resolutions. I was eager to post them online and hold myself accountable. The truth is, I barely thought about them, let alone actually try to achieve them. I was too busy. And there in lies the first problem. So, this year, with nothing more than my word that I’m going to make a concentrated effort to actually work toward my goals and ambitions, I’m here to state this year’s intentions. Hopefully I’ll have a little more success than last year!

Instead of making an organized and articulated list my plan is to focus on a word. This word will hopefully help me achieve many of the things I’m working toward in 2015. It’s a word that I’ve desperately sought the last few years but have struggled to find. It’s a word that I want to welcome into every aspect of my life with open arms. My word is balance.

My hope for myself in 2015 is to find a balance between work and personal life. I love what I do, but I’ve allowed my work to completely absorb every aspect of my life and it has begun to compromise my health, relationships, and well-being. I have every intention of continuing to do what I do for many years to come and I’ve finally realized the only way I’ll be able to do this is by finding a balance.

I have many ideas on how I will achieve this and I’m excited to tell you more about it over the upcoming weeks and months!

Did you make a list of resolutions this year?  I would love to hear about your goals for 2015!
